I heard laughter first - the joyous, familiar, head-thrown-back kind. It sounded like a party in the background, but Gerald Levert was calling me from a rehearsal in his hometown of Cleveland. It was about this time last year, early November. The soul star was prepping for a national tour with his father, the great Eddie Levert of the O'Jays. In addition to the show, which last year warmed the walls of Constitution Hall in Washington (more on that later), Gerald was promoting his new CD, Do I Speak For the World?

I'VE ADMIRED Gerald Levert for a long time. He is, without a doubt, the most stirring soul singer of his generation. Takes after his pops, the underrated Eddie Levert of the O'Jays. But beyond the grits-and-grease histrionics and classic hits, beyond the forcibly magnetic showmanship, there's the brotha's elegantly understated style. He sure knows how to dress. The tailored pastel suits, flowing shirts, fine shoes, slacks with creases sharp enough to cut a ham -- Gerald's look is always so fresh and so clean.

UNTIL last Sunday, my worst experience at Afram was getting lost in the huge crowd when I was about 7 years old. After shedding a bucket of tears, I was reunited with my family at the lost and found van. It was a happy ending.Conversely, my visit to Afram at Oriole Park at Camden Yards last Sunday -- at the age of 23 -- ended with me receiving treatment in the first-aid van for cuts and bruises after being trampled by terrified concert goers who allegedly heard gunshots.Sunday night's incident happened at the closing concert of the open-air, three-day event, which is held annually to celebrate African and African-American culture.
